We are aware that the Covid19 crisis is having an extreme and significant affect on the whole charitable sector.

  • In addition, we will be prioritising charities that work within BAME communities.

Please make sure you have read all the guidelines about who can apply for this round of grants BEFORE filling in the form.

We focus on different priorities every year.

Our priorities will become more focussed from 2021 onwards.

We are also reviewing our policies in light of Black Lives Matter.
